Spot the Real: Isabel Marant 'Holden' Sandals

Can you spot the real Isabel Marant 'Holden' crisscross flat sandals?

Slowly but surely, the normcore "ugly" shoe trend is winning me over. I'm already wearing slim joggers, so what else do I have to lose? With a simple crisscross sandal like Isabel Marant's "Holden," I'd get comfort and instant fashion cred. Of course I'm not about to spend $495 on a glorified flip flop which is why I'm loving the $34 look for less I spotted elsewhere. Can you guess which is the real and which is the steal?

Spot the Real: Free People Slim Joggers

Can you spot the real Free People slim joggers?

Lately, I've been living in slim joggers - sweatpants with a slightly more fitted look and tapered leg. No, I haven't given up on life. I'm being fashionable. Just look at Free People's latest offerings and you'll see what I mean. The trendsetting brand is showing slim joggers paired with everything from socks and Birks to black patent monkstrap boots. You can also dress up your joggers with heels for a night out (see Pinterest for ideas). Free People's joggers cost $78; the look for less (which I own) is just $19.99.
